On the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the Month, Dong Engery's 'DieselHuset' opens its doors to show off its 1930's colossal diesel engine. The engine is started at 11:00, and standing on the balcony looking at a diesel engine larger than a number of houses slowing coming up to speed is a remarkable experience. The whole family took part, and... More

Well... If you have any interest for large machinery, engines or moving parts what so ever, then this is a must go. Check the webpage for when they start the engines so you get the most out of it. Free admission.

This museum is one of a kind. Besides the amazing big engine it also gives a good overview of the B&W diesel engines, also used in the maritime industrie. If you have ever worked with a B&W you should visit this museum for sure. As Dutchmen we even got a separate explanation in English.

This is a very specialised museum, but if you have an interest in things mechanical this is an absolute must. It holds a very, very big diesel engine that is literally awesome. As well there are displays covering the development of the company that developed it, the development of diesel engines for shipping and a display outlining the wares of... More

Diesel House is home of a huge diesel engine that was the largest in the world until the 1960's. Twice a month the engine is turned on, and it is a spectacular view. You can smell the engine as well as feel the vibrations in the room. Even though I'm not especially interested in engines, it was fascinating watching the... More

Very nice museum! Especially for diesel enthusiasts but also for people with a healthy interest in technical stuff. All the models are interactive and all text is also in English and German. Be sure to be around when they start the big engine. Great experience.

My husband and I went to Dieselhouse specifically to listen and watch as they started the big diesel motor. They do this on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month at 11am. Although mechanics and engines are not a big thing for me, the museum, exhbitions - one about a diesel ship and one about the worker's lives were... More
